GAO was asked if a Federal procurement regulation which limits the fee in contracts for architectural or engineering services to 6 percent of the estimated cost of the project, exclusive of fee, includes all fees incurred by the architectural or engineering firm in performing the contract. The statutory limitation on the fee applies only to the architectural or engineering firm's costs to produce and deliver plans, designs, drawings, and specifications. It does not include the costs of items such as travel, technical assistance, preliminary engineering, and construction supervision.
